The above statement from Gauri Das is an outright lie, as the following banning letter issued by Gauri Das himself to Mr. Chetan Thankey demonstrates:
Regardless of the truth of ISKCON's opinion of the IRM, Gauri Das clearly admits that simply to "agree with the views" is reason enough for being banned from the temple. Therefore, people are clearly banned only for what they BELIEVE, which is persecution based on having committed a "thought crime". So Gauri Das's own banning letter shows he is lying when he claims that people are banned from the temple only for disturbing others from worshipping, as the letter clearly states that the ban is actually instituted for believing that ISKCON's policies are wrong. Indeed, as further proof, one can note that those so banned must sign an agreement which states that they agree fully with all of ISKCON's policies before being re-admitted:
So not only is it bad enough that ISKCON bans people simply for believing that Srila Prabhupada is the Guru, but on top of that Gauri Das has the temerity to come out and completely lie about it, stating that those who were banned only for their beliefs, were actually banned because they "disturbed the worship of others". Unless Gauri Das can prove that the thousands of mainly Hindu worshippers who worship at Bhaktivedanta Manor:
Why is he so afraid of telling the world the truth about his banning of those who simply believe in a viewpoint different to that of the GBC, if he actually believes the ban is justified?
